Journals and planners are very popular now. You can make your own pocket sized, folded journal, perfect for taking to workshops, making lists or sketching on the go. In this 3 hour class you will learn to make a 4 x 6 folded structure and sew a signature of pages inside. The pockets are great for holding paper samples, business cards, etc. I will also show you a variation on the original Hedi Kyle design that gives you twice as many pockets as the original. You will leave this class with 2 completed journals and instructions to make as many as you want at home. All materials furnished.
